World Monuments
Published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the World Monuments Fund, World Monuments is a lavish new coffee table book that highlights 50 historic sites alongside compelling essays by eight experts. Established in 1965, the World Monuments Fund is one of the few private organizations working in historic preservation on a global scale. The nonprofit originally focused on Venice, Lalibela and Easter Island but has steadily grown its outreach over the years. Historic preservation efforts are more important than ever in this changing world, where ancient relics are increasingly affected by tourism, climate change, civil unrest, urbanization and a growing population.
